Atlanta city officials announced a new job-training program Monday aimed at incarcerated fathers.
Nonviolent offenders in Atlanta’s Department of Corrections who have kids will now have the chance to undergo job training and start working while still in jail.
Atlanta Chief of Corrections Patrick Labat said rebuilding families is what inspired the program.
“Knowing that we are in a space that we can impact and change lives, that’s huge,” Labat said. “So, it is solely focused on children reconnecting with their families and really the ability for fathers to start paying child support.
